The Fejes String Quartet

St. Jean-Baptiste Church

Formed in 2006, the Fejes Quartet first came to know each other as members of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. A chance opportunity to work together as a quartet established a musical collaboration of the highest standard, and they quickly gained a reputation for their lively performances and engaging approach, resulting in invitations to perform at music societies throughout Scotland. During the 2010 season, concerts included the RSAMD chamber series and a performance at Pollock House Arts Society to celebrate their 50th anniversary. A tour to Hungary to perform Bartók was a particular highlight.

In January 2011, the quartet toured Northern Scotland with great success, where they also promoted their debut CD. In July 2011 they were invited to perform a number of concerts as part of Les Heures Musicales d’Aujols, a chamber music festival in the south of France, the highlight being a performance of Schubert’s C major Cello quintet with the great cellist Raphael Wallfisch.

The Fejes Quartet currently has residencies at both the Glasgow Art Club and The Mackintosh Church in Glasgow. Not only confined to the concert hall and music club environment the Fejes quartet is well known for its versatility. They have recently been involved in a number of successful projects, working together with Enterprise Music Scotland, providing workshops on quartet playing in schools and a collaborative project with the percussion duo Owen and Olly. They have even been known to perform alongside a DJ in Glasgow’s West End.
